A Little Change Makes a Big Difference

Important: For your child’s classroom to receive credit, coins must be sent in sealed Ziploc bags or envelopes with the classroom teacher name visible (either printed on the outside or on a piece of paper inside the bag).

Drop your marked bags and envelopes in the Autism Speaks Walk Fundraiser box (decorated by the A-Team) located in the rotunda. Then plan to join the Selwyn A-Team at zMAX Dragway as they participate in the upcoming Autism Speaks Walk on October 28.
